Released and picked up today, been wanting to try this for a long time. Poured into a tulip.
Look-Murky brown/reddish tint to this beer. With 75 lbs of cherries per barrel, no doubt that's the color. Not the best looking, but no matter.
Smell-Slightly tart and bourbon. Not a huge nose on this beer, pretty subtle.
Taste-Was not expecting this. For the longest time in my head I was thinking this would be a sweeter stout, but leans very much to the tart side. Bourbon up front, and as the beer warms a cherry flavor mid-palate. Beer finishes with a tart and even sour cherry flavor.
Feel-Not an overly heavy beer like some other big stouts like this. A bit more carbonation which lends well to the overall flavor. Beer doesn't sit on the tongue to long, which is nice in a beer like this. Makes it an easy drinker.
Overall-I really like this. Better as it warms, and was on the fence at first. When I got over the fact that it was sour instead of sweet, I kept wanting more. Will be trying to track down another 4-pack today.

Not great, doesn't seem to mesh well - specifically the bourbon stout and the sourness of the cherries. Somewhat medicinal tasting. Perhaps this beer points to the fact that I'm not a huge lambic fan. But especially not when combined with a beer that should be sort of sweet in my mind (the bourbon).

The cherries made this beer an average beer and that is a pity. Nice pour in my Struise glass with a decent head with very littles lacing. Nice bourbon notes. The cherries make this beer a bit too sour for me but for the rest a good drinkable beer.
